Easy track
Starting from the car park on Mount Nebo Road, Jollys Lookout, this walk takes you on a little circuit in the eucalypt forest of D’Aguilar National Park via the Egernia Circuit Track, crossing Jollys Creek twice along the way. This lovely little walk may just be what you need after having a feast in the Jollys Lookout nearby. With steps to help you in the steep parts and carefully placed signposts throughout the track, you can just focus on the gorgeous eucalypt trees and the birdlife on them. You can take your kids with you and let them marvel at nature as well. Come early if you want to hear and see more birds. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
